HC Deb 28 November 1944 vol 404 c2422W
Sir H. Williams

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why the Alien Protected Areas Order (S.R. & O., No. 1268, of 1944) did not state in which areas the restrictions were revoked, so as to avoid the necessity of persons studying seven earlier Orders.

Mr. H. Morrison

I informed the House in reply to a question by my hon. Friend the Member for East Wolverhampton (Mr. Mander) on 16th November that I had revoked, with effect from 17th November, the Aliens Protected Areas Orders which prohibited aliens from entering or remaining in certain areas without police permission. The Order referred to is the instrument giving effect to that announcement and it revokes all the Aliens Protected Areas Orders. It did not seem necessary in the circumstances to recapitulate the lengthy schedules prescribing the areas, which were reasonably well known to the persons affected.
